One Way Circumstance

This song is meant to be a direct presentation of the gospel. It’s not always easy to explain the fall of man and God’s plan for his redemption in a concise way. A rap song seemed like a good way to pack a lot of words in to a short amount of time. Our time on Earth here is very short, but it is also very precious. Eternity will be forever. While I am here, I want to be in the center of Lord’s will and learn how to make every moment count. I have already wasted so much time, and made so many decisions that I regret. Even after writing this song! Let this be the cry of my heart:
“Lord, make me to know my end,
And what is the measure of my days,
That I may know how frail I am.
Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths,
And my age is as nothing before You;
Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor.” (-Psalm 39:4-5)
